Lol. Don't assume that at all. I'm a cheap bastard. I fly Ryanair and EasyJet all the time. Hell, I flew "Wizz Air" from Frankfurt to Budapest two years ago. I just don't notice that big of a difference in service between the discount carriers and the big ones anymore. The big ones don't give you free food and drink (except on long distance flights) and now nickel and dime you on luggage and seat selection. Furthermore, their legroom isn't much better. In light of that, it's hard to justify a $250 ticket on Lufthansa or British Airways when EasyJet will get me to the same place just as quickly for cab fare? So would I chose Frontier over AA, Delta, or United? Sure. Why not?
